4. Modelling future climate The whole of human society operates on knowing the future weather. For example, farmers in India know when the monsoon rains will come next year and so they know when to plant the crops. Farmers in Indonesia know there are two monsoon rains each year, so next year they can have two harvests. This is based on their knowledge of the past, as the monsoons have always come at about the same time each year in living memory. But the need to predict goes deeper than this as it influences every part of our lives. Our

7. Climate change in the mountains Evidence from the mountains residence time (the time it stays in the atmosphere) is only nine days. The two other major greenhouse gases are carbon dioxide and methane, and their concentrations in the Earth’s atmosphere have been increasing since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in the mid-18th century, due particularly to the burning of fossil fuels, the clearing of forests, and other changes in land use. Molecules of carbon dioxide and methane stay in the atmosphere for years after they are emitted: their residence times are, respectively, five to 200 years and
